DevManView is a small-sized and portable software application similar to the standard Device Manager in Windows, providing users with additional useful features when it comes to administering devices.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the program files anywhere on the disk and just click the EXE to run.
It is also possible to save DevManView to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC without prior installers.
An important aspect to take into account is that the Windows registry does not get updated with new entries, and no additional files are created on the disk, leaving it clean after removal.
As far as the interface goes, the main window is not particularly attractive but very simple to work with. All options are accessible either from the menu bar or context menu.
A list is populated with all detected devices at startup. Shown information includes the device name, manufacturer, service, device type code and name, driver date, and so on. This information can be saved to TXT, CSV, HTM, HTML or XML format for closer inspection.
It is possible to enable, disable or uninstall a selected device (in single or batch mode), open its INI file or registry record, look up a device’s name on Google, use a search function when dealing with large amounts of data, as well as display only connected devices, along with non-plug and play drivers. DevManView can be sent to the system tray area.
The app does not put a strain on computer performance, as it runs on low CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and shows accurate information. No error dialogs were shown in our testing, and the app did not hang or crash. To sum it up, DevManView comes packed with some handy features for managing devices, and it can be handled by anyone.
